Adventures In...

Graphic Design

I used to be intimidated by graphic design, well actually, I still kind of am.  I am proficient in Microsoft Publisher, but I am still struggling with the whole Adobe thing, which is kind of an issue.  I mean, I am seriously considering buying an "InDesign for Dummies" book, because I feel like I really need to know how to use it in order to become more advanced! It would also help if I had the program on my computer.  I do have photo shop, but that is another story, make that two "for Dummies" books that I need to buy.  Using Publisher has been great, though! Here are some of my most recent creations, two promotional posters for "9400 Stories" and an invitation for the Department of Housing and Residence Life.

Elizabeth Banks

I am literally in awe of Elizabeth Banks.  She is ROCKING the red carpets at various Hunger Games premieres.  She can do no wrong lately.  Is she becoming one of my newest style icons? With this string of good looks she is definitely becoming a contender.  I love all of these dresses so much that I am not even sure if I can pick a favorite.  If I HAD to pick, though, I would say that the magenta Marc Jacobs is my favorite.  I just can't wait to see what she wears next!

Things I'm loving

1. Kate Spade's Tennis Collection

I am literally obsessed with these pieces.  Although somewhat impractical (a turf-covered bag?!), I adore the whimsy surrounding my favorite sport!


Just a warning, this pattern will be the focus of my upcoming creative sessions.

3. British Boybands

Yep, I said it.   BUT it is not like I am jumping on the bandwagon.  GC let me in on these gems a while back. One Direction is everyone's new favorite band.  MSN.com even compared them to the Beatles.  Overkill? I think yes, but they're still great

Greek Dad's Make Great Italian Food

Although I can't take credit for making this pasta from scratch (with a pasta machine) I can certainly take credit for eating it. So ridiculously good, thanks Dad!

Choco Naners

I was on a baking roll over spring break.  GC and I decided to go (chocolate covered) bananas...

Blueberry Pie Pancakes!

My adventures in baking continue, these pancakes (which I found at  http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/06/09/blueberry-pie-pancakes/) were absolutely amazing.
